What a veritable feast of sport and punting this weekend brings with The Ryder Cup and down at Newmarket the Cambridgeshire meeting, chuck in a Merseyside Derby and no one is going to B&Q!
Let me be very clear to any young punters, once you start that game of weekend activities that involve shops/relatives etc you will never get out of it. Stand firm, now I have nothing against B&Q, Halfords, Homebase per se. I’ve never been inside but they look superb from the outside but on a weekend of such huge punting significance BetFan has declared them NO GO ZONES.
Up at Gleneagles young Rory and co will look to send the Yanks back empty handed but I have this annoying voice (not the Devilfish) in my head saying American Skipper the great Tom Watson is the man for the job, we shall see but one things for sure nothing will ever beat the theatre of Medinah in one of the greatest shocks since the Artful Dodger Andy Bell uttered the words ‘You lads sit here I will get this round.”
The three day Newmarket Cambridgeshire jamboree starts today in what is always an informative meeting. The Gambling Don tells me it’s his most informative meeting of the year with the big yards introducing two year olds who will go on to big things next season. Who knows the George at Asda range may have been smashed into to provide an Autumn outfit. Brown is a difficult colour to carry off as you proved at Doncaster TGD. One thing is for certain for those watching at home this is a meeting where horses must be made a note of because winners will flow from this. The big race on Saturday looks as competitive as ever but here at BetFan Towers we think we have the winner and it’s not the favourite. More on that on BetFan TV Tomorrow.
Our bet today runs up at Perth and is trained by Nigel Twiston Davies who targets this meeting with the same zest the Tartan Tipster attacks a free Buffett and introduces the highest rated horse to run over fences since last April, Splash of Ginge. He won the Betfair hurdle before creditable runs at the main Festivals and has schooled impressively. He takes on a Summer Jumper in form but I’m told the yard feel a clear round and he will win well. The race is the 3.55 and Splash of Ginge is 11/10 with Betfred which looks mighty generous from the bald one.
Have a great day, enjoy the Golf, Racing, Football and if anyone tries to get you to go to B&Q etc simply say D I Y, do it yourself!
Back next Thursday.
